Today’s Headlines

Featured Headline: There’s been a lot written about bikes and the Occupy Movement here, at GRIST and Transportation Nation, but an article in Next American City makes the case that the Occupy Movement is a Livable Streets Movement (and vice-versa).  A must read, regardless of politics.

    What “Ever-Present Threat of Terrorism”? 

    The one that the LASD then gets to earn overtime “fighting” after declaring, with no citation, that it exists?

    How convenient.

    I was appalled by the focus on traffic by the major news outlets with regards to the Occupy march.  Trust me, there’s been worse traffic.  It’s funny how they stress the paltry crowds and the lack of consensus and then they talk about how it’s the worst traffic calamity the city has ever seen.
